    Yes, campers can use the swimming pool and restaurant. I am not sure about camp site size, didn't have a close look, but they seemed fairly spacious.

    If the ablution facilities are important for you (they are not for me) then they were quite poor. Electricity was, as far as I can recall, fine. But other aspects make this my top choice for the Maun area - see my review

    We booked around 5 months in advance and this seems to be well advised, as some desired dates were already not available. This seems to be the norm for Botswana.
